The purpose of this discussion paper is to examine trends in global research collaboration and related infrastructure, and the impact of those trends on government science and innovation in the 'new normal'.
Field-building intermediaries play an important role in social sector ecosystems and they need to be supported financially. But what do they do and what kind of funding do they need to sustain their work and impact?
This report aims to provide guidance on how governments can work with each other and with partners to address complex, boundary-spanning problems such as poverty, homelessness, hunger and climate change, by bringing together organisations to address complex client needs that could not be served by...

Collaboration most often occurs in dynamic environments in which multiple logics are in play.
Additive manufacturing technology and its implementation in construction as an eco-innovative solution
This paper highlights the key roles of interdisciplinary research and importance of material formulations.
This paper reports on the arrangements in place in each state/territory to support a cross-agency response based on characteristics associated with effective cross-agency responses identified in the research literature.
Purpose: This paper set out to uncover the advice available to help people take effective action within our home to improve mental health. The literature and professions are virtually silent on the issue. The professional advice is often the opposite suggesting we should get out...
Purpose / Context - As the emerging digital technology, Building Information Modelling has been applied in the multidisciplinary design work for sustainable houses. This study aims to input the real-world design context into the BIM pedagogy and to demonstrate the capacity of BIM in enhancing...
Identifying and Addressing Challenges Faced by Transdisciplinary Research Teams in Climate Change Research
Transdisciplinary research is increasingly used in projects dealing with transitions to sustainable, resilient and low-carbon societies. Transdisciplinary research projects require collaboration and coordination between researchers from different disciplinary backgrounds. Academic literature provides valuable insights on designing, facilitating, leading and evaluating transdisciplinary projects.
Multidisciplinary arts are broad and inclusive, with an emphasis on the presence of more than one discipline, which may extend beyond the arts, thereby offering both problems and opportunities for their funding. This report, which summarises the findings of a D’art question developed and conducted...
